^^^^DO IT!!! That would be cool to hear about! I would brag like crazy about that.
I finally did it at the 25th Annual Shootout! 10.932 @ 123.12 ... there is no pressure and after this I have no more goals for the 14b. I don't feel the need to chase down Joe's time to be #2. It would take another .05 to overtake him if you go by the 10.87 and nearly a full 10th if you use his 10.84 (nitrous on the car but not used).
I can't say I wouldn't ever go back to it Joe! But, the 14b is all I've ever ran. Pretty tired of pushing for those hundredths at this point. I'll do at least the one more track day that's all I can guarantee. For now, I'm fully basking in the satisfaction of having accomplished the goal!
I totally feel where you're coming from. I felt the SAME way. Later on, I felt like I should have pushed it more.
Either way, you DID accomplish your goal, and that kicks ass!
Kind of following your lead that way Justin! Figured if I try out the 16g and have some fun I can always come back to the little fellow with anything I learn along the way. I did pick up .1 between the outing without the unclipped wheel and when I put it on. But, I've picked up a whole lot more than .1 just with hitting the shift points better as well, or just having better air. So I'd say it's likely it helped, but not completely conclusive. That's why I'd like to try the untouched 14b in the 6cm housing. Hopefully I can get at least two track outings here in the near future. One as is with a better DA (as best I can tell it was around 2000' in Norwalk but I can't find accurate weather data), and another with the untouched 14b. Then it's 16g time if I can get a third outing!
Hey have you got a recent weight on the car???
2310, with glass windows? Is that with you in it?
